pictures on the news have been barack obama and chris christie, you know, and there are a lot of people saying -- i heard people say to me, that might look like if obama wins, that might look like the two guys that are running against. not two guys, but a president and another guy who is running for president four years from now. that has played very well. the bipartisanship or the lack of politics in the disaster relief seems to have played well. i want to underscore, we're in democratic country. >> what's so important about those photos is it does underscore what most swing voters here in ohio know or want to see from their government. people putting politics aside. getting it done. practical solutions. that's why those images will resonate. >> all right. john, ali, good to see you, guys, and john, again, next time we want to see grandmother. good to see you. >>> one new york resident described superstorm sandy in just five words. displaced, sad, grateful, shock, and awe. we're going have more on the historic natural disaster.

storm. we don't have the supply coming in. governor chris christie gave authorization for the gas stations to buy that supply from out of state. it's not usually done to alleviate the problem. it's going to take time. we were running out of gas as well. we were going to shoot gas stations with a long line, by the time we found one, we were out of gas as well. tempers were flaring. take a look and listen to how people were dealing with it. >> i have to make three trips to this gas station. >> a little tank, you have to fill it up three times. just to get home. it still might not make it. >> any other gas stations with gas? >> no other gas stations with gas. >> i'm broke down. i'm stranded. i can't get home. no gas. >> reporter: this affects everybody from delivery cabs to people delivering food to people wanting to get home. i don't think the problem is going to be alleviated anymore soon. you mentioned mta, there are a few trains back online. commuter railroads as well. southern manhattan, it's still dark around me. the best way of action, either because it's forced upon you or be

president will inspect the disaster scene along with governor chris christie, a top romney supporter. dan lothian is live in washington. good morning, dan. what is the president's message right now to storm victims? >> reporter: well, it really was two-fold. first of all, he wanted to pledge that the federal government would cut through red tape, cut through all the bureaucracy. he said there would be no excuses for inaction. and that federal agencies should really explore all options even leaning on the military if necessary to get the resources to where they need to get as quickly as possible. but secondly, what the president was also trying to reinforce yesterday was kind of uplifting the spirits of those hit by the storm. some of whom have lost everything saying that america is with you, america will help you get back on your feet. and he praised those who have already jumped in and taken action. >> during the darkness of the storm, i think we also saw what's brightest in america. i think all of us have honestly been shocked by the force of mother nature as we watch it on televis

information you can, however you get the information. governor chris christie today described the information at the jersey shore as unthinkable. that's the word he used. it's certainly true. hard to wrap your brain around pictures like these from the national guard. look at that. that's the coastline of seaside heights. houses buried in the sand. sand washed into homes at least 100 yards from the normal high tide line. i spoke with seaside heights mayor, bill acre. what are you contending with tonight? what is the number one priority right now? >> right now, we're just trying to get through the evening. we're trying to secure some diesel fuel to keep the police station running and the borough hall, which is the only building that has the power through the generator right now. we're trying to get over 100 gallons of fuel from the oem right now. that's what we're doing at the time. >> do you -- the pictures are just horrific to look at. do you have any sense of the scope of the destruction? >> i -- i'm glad you have a picture, because if you don't see it, you can't fully understand

, michael bloomberg, deputy mayer bob steele, cuomo, governor chris christie. back then there wasn't that strong of a leadership. ray nagin was the mayor, sometimet no to be found. so i saw the importance of people who take charge and say i'm going to run into this crisis and i'm going to help solve it. secondly, it reminded us that we're all in the same boat together. this election is somewhat about the age-old tension between, all right, we're all individual freedom, you know, have our own liberty and we're responsible for ourselves or we're all in the same boat and we're responsible, too, for each other. and it reminds you when you have a hurricane, that no matter how successful you are, you're also part of a community and you're responsibility for the community. thirdly, it reminded me of the importance of innovation. after the storm in new orleans, for example, we reinvented the school system instead of just replicating the school system. that's now had double digits, score gains for the past three years. so as i think rahm emanuel, to pair a fwraz him, never let a good hurrican

he's dealt with the hurricane. images and headlines like this have helped, too, featuring chris christie of new jersey on a bipartisan storm damage tour together from wednesday. but not everyone's a fan of the federal agencies that handle disasters like these, including rand paul. he's "outfront" tonight. senator, good to see you and i want to talk about fema. they were on earlier. you know, i think by all accounts, what we've heard, some are frustrated, but they're trying hard to do a good job. at the beginning of the hurricane season this year, you tried to hold up a five-year extension of fema's program. it was tied to an amendment about personhood. why did you do it? >> well, what i have always maintained on our side is that fema should exist on money that comes in as revenue, but not on borrowed money, so really the fight wasn't about we should borrow money for fema or come from existing funds. we send billions of dollars overseas to aid other countries. i'm for keeping that money home and paying for fema with that rather than borrowing money. >> so, you don't have a proble

focus on the recovery and not the election. and this from carl. chris christie is able to put aside political differences in a time of disaster. quite different from now democrats treated president bush after katrina. this from james. fitting it tacks an act of god to finally spotlight romney's weaknesses. thank you for your responses and joining me today. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with ashleigh banfield. >> thank you so much. it's 11:00 on the east coast. 8:00 a.m. on the west coast. recovery is a word you are going to be hearing a lot of in the next few days. the word normalcy, not so much. in the wake of superstorm sandy, normal life is a far off dream for so many millions in the northeast corridor and points west. worst of all, a still growing toll of lives lost. at least 40 in the u.s. one so far in canada. more than 6 million homes and businesses still don't have electricity but that is a big improvement from yesterday. and while floods and surges with some exceptions have gone down, that just makes the devastation all the more apparent. you are looking at point pleas
